Smart Communications, Globe Telecom, and DITO Telecommunity are among the top three (3) major mobile network service providers in the Philippines. Smart has Sun Cellular and TNT (Talk ‘n Text) as their subsidiary networks, while Globe has TM (Touch Mobile) and GOMO.

To easily identify to what mobile network a phone number belongs, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) assigned them prefix numbers. In the Philippines, a prefix number is the first four (4) digits of a mobile number (e.g., 0912, 0945, 0927, and so on).

But, with these many mobile network service providers operating in the country, we cannot directly tell what is the mobile network of a certain phone number is. Well, not anymore! We are here to solve this.

What Network Philippines is an online platform where anyone can easily check the mobile network of a specific phone number. You can either use our free network checker tool or simply browse through our list of prefix numbers.

Is It Important to Know the Network of a Phone Number?

Many of us prefer to know what mobile network our friends or someone is using before calling or texting them. This is for a very simple reason – to save on mobile load or credits. A mobile load is our phone’s airtime balance, which we can buy at sari-sari stores, convenience stores, or even online through websites like

By knowing their mobile network, we can then register to a specific load promo that we can use.

How to Know Someone’s Mobile Network

Here at What Network PH, we have two ways to check the mobile network of any mobile phone number in the Philippines.

Checking a phone number’s mobile network through our network checker is easy. Here are the steps:

Step 1. Click here to open the network checker tool.
Step 2. Enter your phone number using the local format (09 instead of 639).
Step 3. Then, click the “CHECK NETWORK” button or simply hit enter.

And done! Our network checker tool will tell you exactly what the mobile network of the phone number you entered is.

2. Using Our Tabulated List of Prefix Numbers

Yes. The list you saw above is what we mean.

If you have your phone number, just get its first four digits and check for it on the list above. After you found it, look on its right side and you will see its corresponding mobile network.

If the phone number is in international format, simply take the first five digits of that mobile number and change “63” to “0”. You should now have a four-digit number you can use for checking.

Understanding the Mobile Number Prefixes

In the Philippines, the telecom companies – Smart, Globe, Sun, DITO, TNT, and TM – use a prefix number as a unique identifier to determine a phone number’s mobile network.

In layman’s terms, these numbers are called “prefix numbers” since they are located at the start of any 11-digit phone number. Its the first four digits. If a phone number is in international format, use the reference below.

Quick Example

We have a phone number: 639123456789. To get its prefix number, we simply take out the first two numbers, 63, and replace them with zero (0). Now we have 0912 as the prefix number.

If we look at the list above, it is loud and clear that the mobile network of 09123456789 is TNT.
